A firefighter was among four people with minor injuries after a burning taxi exploded in Singapore today (Sunday). The explosion was caught on camera from multiple angles.
A taxi caught fire and exploded on Commonwealth Avenue, near Buona Vista MRT station, on Sunday (Apr 30), injuring four people including a firefighter.
According to Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam, the injured firefighter had first-degree burns to his face and neck. He has since been discharged from hospital and is recuperating, SCDF said, thanking the public for its concern in a subsequent update on Facebook.
The fire was extinguished by SCDF using two water jets and a compressed air foam backpack.
Preliminary investigations by the SCDF and police revealed that the explosion was likely caused by a road traffic accident.
